    Hello,
    Was in the market for a gun light. I know the streamlight ones are good but didn't care for the way or style of thier on/off switch.
    Came across this light:

    https://www.armsunlimited.com/INFORCE-APL-LED-Auto-Pistol-Light-p/apl.htm


    What was appealing was the paddle on/off switch. It's ambidextrous (on both sides). I love it! I can use my index finger easily or use my thumb from my supporting hand.
    So far it works good. The actuation of the switches feel good quality wise. yeah it doesn't strobe ( I dont think it does) but the light is good form me. Looking at the instructions found out it's made in the USA. Yay!
    Just thought I'd share.
    p.s. I do not work for armsunlimited.com. This is where I got it from.

    Some pictures: sorry for the cell phone quality pictures.

    Although i'm the proud owner of a new X300 Ultra, I appreciate Inforce's efforts to make the light, locking mechanism and switches, completely flush and snag proof. I suspect most light makers will follow this design for their future models.

    What up1911fan said, 200 lumens.

    It's bright enough for me. :)

    I love how I can aquire a target and if I choose to turn on the light at that moment its easy to do without moving off the target.

    200 lumens is pretty bright. Not bad.

    I just picked mine up today and I'm slightly disapointed. I feels good, very flush, but I am concerned the latch won't hold up, and lastly if you screw the bezel in all the way it randomly turns on and off. I really like how light it is, and how slim but may not end up keeping it.

    I got to admit it looks better on the black Glock.
